HELP I have a 60 something (I think) Model L. I am having a problem that I don't have a clue where to start looking. The tractor runs good and has been working well. Had a few glitches but got them lined out. Sunday I hooked up the Bush Hog and started to knock down a small area that had grown over with weeds. I made 3 Passes and the thing stops pulling. I can disengage the pto and it starts pulling again. Pulls fine until I engage the bush hog then it stops in its tracks. Any one have any Ideas where to start looking?????

Thanks in advance for any ideas. This is way above my knowledge of the machine.

Can you spin the brush hog by hand? Sounds like the attachment is loading it down. Try a different attachment if you have one. Will help to narrow it down. Also, make sure there is lubricant in the brush hog gear box. Did it get hot in those three passes?

"Stops pulling" means stops driving the wheels? Is the attachment still spinning?

Lnk has it right, first check that the attachment spins freely. If that's all ok, you can try an experiment where you butt the nose into a handy tree or boulder, and feed in power with the forward clutch. If you can fully engage it and the tractor's not moving, the clutch is worn. With a properly adjusted clutch, it will work hard to move the obstacle, and if it's completely blocked, stall the engine or spin the wheels.

That happens to me when I forget and leave the hi-lo lever in neutral. If that is not the problem, try it first in hi, then in lo and see how it reacts. Make sure this hi-lo clutch is adjusted correctly with enough tension on the lever.

It's been 4 days since the op asked, I wonder if he is going to add anything? Sure would like to find out how he made out.
